Excerpt from Term Paper :



Lastly the development of the railroad as a collective source of the growth of tourism, reshaped the lands surrounding New York city and allowed city and rural dwellers alike to interact and spend leisure time visiting places in the state they had not seen before. The real initial development of tourism, and especially national tourism could easily be linked to the development of the railroads. This industry being almost a completely new economic avenue, would transform how people thought of travel, previously thought of as a necessity to relocation, now it could be a temporary extended visit to those who had resulted before or to see places that had only been read about in books up to this point. The flyer, reproduced here is one that demonstrates this new emphasis on rail travel as a way to rather quickly leave the city behind and seek a calmer venue for leisure time:

The foundational expansion of the transportation system in New York State made possible economic growth that was unmatched in many regional locations and allowed for the support of one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world. With the culmination of the railroad infrastructure came jobs in manufacturing and maintenance of the rail lines that were open to diverse populations that had been underserved in the labor market. Additionally the agricultural composition of many of the states local markets was able to diversify and intensify, developing whole systems of distribution that had not been possible before.
